THORSwap Monthly Recap: May 2022

$vTHOR launch, Exchange fee sharing, Terra Chain Resolution, THORYield Updates, and what’s on the horizon

$vTHOR ($THOR Staking 2.0) Launch

May started off with a blast as we finally launched $THOR Staking 2.0 to great success. The majority of $THOR holders have migrated to our new Tokenized Vault Standard (ERC-4626) $vTHOR contract, which introduces:

  • $vTHOR token: Stake $THOR tokens to receive $vTHOR tokens, a composable and transferrable representation of your staked $THOR position.
  • Additional Staking Rewards: Legacy Staking Rewards came purely from emissions of the Community Incentives pool. Staking 2.0 rewards are a culmination of Community Incentives emissions plus 75% of all THORSwap revenues.
  • Auto-compounding Staking Rewards: Staking 2.0 now features automatic compounding — $THOR stakers will receive daily rewards and auto-compound without any user action. This removes the to repeatedly claim and re-deposit, saving gas and helping stakers to earn more rewards.
  • Trading Discounts promo: To celebrate the launch of $vTHOR, for a limited time, THORSwap Exchange Fees has been 100% waived for everyone staking $THOR + holding any amount of $vTHOR.

Exchange Fee Sharing for $vTHOR holders

Since May 4th, 402,504 $THOR (as of May 25th) has been rewarded to $vTHOR holders from 75% of THORSwap’s Exchange Fee earnings. These rewards present an improvement over emission incentives as $THOR was directly purchased from circulating supply on the open market and distributed to the staking vault.

THORYield Updates

Following the launch of $vTHOR, THORYield has also been updated with a $THOR Staking Rewards Tracker for both web & mobile app:
